I registered for an account just because I disagree with your article.
I never saw this as a problem. I need a phone. Not a GoPro. Splash resistant is good enough. Wireless charging is useless compared to warp. $1000+ phones are ridiculous as it is. Leave those cost-incurring nonsense at the Pro model. There is a reason why OnePlus is doing awesome as a brand. It does not need to be another Samsung or Apple.
